Sony Pictures and Ghost House Pictures The Grudge remake is set to hit theaters October 22nd, after being bumped up a week to compete head on with Seed of Chucky- this shows some serious confidence considering the crew just headed back to Japan for some re-shoots. Read on for details…
Sarah Michelle Gellar and the rest of the “The Grudge” company will head back to Japan in two weeks to film some additional shots for the Sony chiller.
That’s the word from “The Grudge’s” hunky leading man, Jason Behr. The team already spent three months in Tokyo to make the feature, co-written and directed by Takashi Shimizu.
Behr, best-known for his starring role in “Roswell,” tells this column that working in Japan was memorable. “You’re sort of forced to deal with the customs, but it was a great experience and everyone in Japan was just absolutely wonderful,” he says of the picture, which started production in January.
Behr, lucky dog, plays Gellar’s boyfriend in the movie about an American nurse living in Tokyo who is exposed to a supernatural virus that locks a person in a powerful rage before claiming his or her life. Ok, so maybe he’s not so lucky in this case.
